Alpha Light™ Ballistic Clipboard & Tablet Holder
The Alpha Light Ballistic Clipboard and Tablet Holder was designed specifically for the needs of traffic officers, school resource officers, and others where a routine day may suddenly turn violent. Our unique design uses a premium ballistic steel panel and large backface pad to safely absorb hits with negligible blunt trauma, while the hand strap allows the user to maintain full control of it with one hand - even when repeatedly struck by gunfire!
The Alpha Light is available as both a basic ballistic clipboard for use with paper pads, and as a tablet holder version which adds corner bumpers and magnetic clips allowing it to securely anchor all common tablets and tablet cases. (Note that modern electronics are not affected by magnets; these clips will not damage your tablet or otherwise impact its performance).
The clipboard includes a small viewport in the ballistic panel allowing the front tablet camera to be used without having to remove the tablet from the clipboard. The viewport on the standard version is positioned for iPads and other tablets with the camera in the upper right; for department orders the viewport can be positioned elsewhere or eliminated entirely as desired. Note that the viewport represents just 0.3% of the clipboard area - a worthwhile ballistic tradeoff for the increased functionality.

Hardcore Defense assumes no liability for illegal use or misuse of the product. It is usually legal for civilians to purchase and own body armor and ballistic shields within the United States. Residents of Connecticut and any individuals convicted of a felony are prohibited from owning bulletproof vests and other body armor; whether a ballistic clipboard counts as "body armor" is open to debate and interpretation may vary by jurisdiction.
